Ortho-Bionomy is a deeply effective but very gentle form of bodywork. It mixes beautifully with other modalities including massage therapy. It uses positioning and gentle compression to trigger the body’s self correcting reflexes. It is effective with both acute and chronic conditions including back pain, whip lash, carpal tunnel syndrome, sports injuries, trauma resolution and restoring a sense of well being. It is done with clients clothed. It provides massage therapists with a tool to work deeply without straining their hands and thumbs. It provides energy workers with an appropriate tool to work specifically and physically. It provides clients with a modality that is comfortable to receive, which can be very helpful, especially when a person is in pain. Practicing Ortho-Bionomy is fun and creative as it is principle based work. This class will include the history and principles of Ortho-Bionomy. Students will learn the underlying principles and the procedure, as well as techniques for the whole body including the spine, shoulder girdle and pelvic girdle. The class will be a combination of lecture, demonstration, and a lot of hands on practice. After this one weekend class students will be able to use the techniques and apply the principles in their practice and in their life.
